Forum: etree Subject: Why would archive.org be blocked?

This morning when I tried to access this site my antivirus software (Bullguard in UK) wanted to block access, with the following warning:

quote:
"For your security BullGuard has blocked access to this page
The site is listed as a malicious site that may be stealing identity information, plant viruses on your machine or do other harmful things.

The information we have indicate that this site:
Contains pages that offer advice on how to commit illegal or criminal activities (e.g.: how to commit murder, build bombs, pick locks etc.), or how to avoid detection. They may also provide information about illegal manipulation of electronic devices, hacking, fraud and illegal distribution of software.

Contains pages that promote or offer advice on how to gain unauthorized access to proprietary computer systems, for the purpose of stealing information, perpetrating fraud, creating viruses, or committing other illegal activity related to theft of digital information".

I wonder why this should be the case. Anyone else have this problem?

They seem to have unblocked it now. I still wonder what caused that to happen.
